This helps to reduce health problem by not exposing to the saturated haze. Moreover, cutting down on travelling time can help a lot. Lastly, working from home would improve on work-life-balance.

The haze is gone and the PM2.5 value is in the healthy zone for the fourth day. However, the haze has trained us to take precaution against similar attack in future.

What we are proud of is the display of kindness by our fellow Singaporeans during the down period, such as distributing of free masks and “liang teh”. Different people are giving different contribution in term of what they are capable of.
